Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- An hours-long standoff in Henderson ended with an arrest on Friday afternoon.

Authorities said a suspect barricaded himself in a residence near Warm Springs and Center Street at about 11 a.m. after stealing a scooter.

When he refused to come out, SWAT was called in. Police said the man was also wanted in connection with other recent crimes. 

Once authorities used pepper-based gas in the room he was in, they were able to take him into custody at about 3:45 p.m.

The suspect has not been identified. It's unclear if he is a minor.
